Democracy is one of the core virtues if not values of the world, in which the will of the people is to be actualized. It is these institutions in which will be in the end in charge of implementing the changes to achieve the goals, and determine the means in which they execute this plan. The will of the people is directly correlate to the information upon which they can create judgement upon. Thus, it is of the highest paramount importance to promote news in which promote the problems, ongoing efforts, roadblocks and hurdles, and solutions to the sustainable development goals.
Problem- News has perverse incentives o Stories presented by the news must be emotional (exciting or scary) o News must be new and fresh and fast o It’s survival is not based in the advancement and improvement of society
This problem exacerbates under reporting for sustainable development goals especially due to their nature, as long-term goals that promote the interests of emotionally distant and very normal people who live in difficult circumstances.
What it does
The solution I propose is regarding Sustainable Development Goal #17: Partnerships for the goals. I am building an application which: • Is valued for its trust, and not by metrics that are look towards emotional metrics; thereby, being unmoving to perverse incentives • Curates stories about the development goals and its solutions over its life cycle • Collects expert perspectives and credible sources and share their innovative solutions to the sustainability goals
